The largest vintage-tractor auction company returns to the Quad Cities this week!

Mecum Auctions’ 2019 Gone Farmin’ Spring Classic drives onto the Mississippi Valley Fair Center (2815 W Locust St. Davenport) this Thursday Mar 28 and will stick around through Saturday Mar 30.

Offering an unparalleled array of vintage and collectible tractors is a uniquely Mecum trait. With a selection of hundreds of different tractors at each tractor auction, Mecum presents a range that includes machines produced from the 1800s to those produced in just the past decade. Sporting the red of International, the orange of Allis Chalmers, the green-and-yellow livery of John Deere, and even the bright blue-and-orange of Lamborghini, each tractor auction offers a virtual rainbow of color and feast for the eyes with the massive assortment of makes and models available. Fun and family-friendly events, the auctions draw enthusiasts of all kinds, many of whom attend just to browse the impressive displays and take in the auction excitement.

Admission is $10 per person, per day. Children 12 and under receive complimentary admission.
